The Mort Union of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by IM with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 21.545 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 8,839 trillion Kefkaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 410,262 Kefkaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", the army's shirt ninja are the most feared assassins in the region, and weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 11,226th in the world and 1st in Mount Olympus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 439,145 Standard Monetary Units.
